Oakleigh Park train station is slightly to the north of the north London suburb in the Borough of Barnet. The station - on the East Coast Main Line between London King's Cross and Edinburgh Waverley - first opened to passengers in 1873 and remained largely unchanged until the 1970s, when it was upgraded in readiness for electrocution of the lines.
Oakleigh Park operates three trains per hour in both directions, toward Moorgate from platform 1, and Welwyn Garden City from platform 4; an additional weeknight and weekend service runs direct to London King's Cross, taking twenty minutes.
Mainly a residential area and commuter suburb, Oakleigh Park is also a wonderful place to spend some time outdoors, with the majestic Oak Hill Park a mile east of the station. The park is home to the Pymmes Brook and the picturesque Pymmes Brook trail, which leads toward the Oak Hill Park Cafe and Bowls Club.
